Week 5: Where On Earth Did the Bible Come From?

This sermon was presented on January 31, 2016 in Portland, OR. Speaker: Tim Mackie  |  Scripture: Various  |  Length: 53:00

What does it mean to believe that the Bible is a divine word to God’s people? Does it require a belief that the book fell from heaven or that its origins are less than human? In this teaching we’ll explore a crash course on the history of the Bible and why it came into existence. It’s a covenant document, telling the story of how has rescued and redeemed a people, invited them into a covenant relationship, and given them the terms of the covenant relationship. That story all leads to Jesus and the family he invites all humans to join.
